The right side of my keyboard is not working. I have an Acer Aspire 4720. The backspace, enter, and down arrow do not work. There might be a few more. Would a new keyboard work or is there some other...


I would try going to DOS and seeing if the keyboard will work correctly there. This would eliminate any Windows errors problems. Here's a link to a site that has a good explanation of how to determine if you should replace the keyboard. You can also swap out the keyboard with someone else temporarily to be sure. Good luck!

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.
